Art Journaling, published by Stampington and Company is a quarterly publication filled with pages from amazing artist who share their emotions, thoughts and passions from the pages of their own personal journals. Inside are pages using techniques like rubber stamping, painting, drawing, digital art, photography, mixed media, collage and lettering in a variety of artistic styles. In the Summer 2016 issue you’ll find tips, techniques and project ideas like a project tutorial for a fold out folio, artist profiles, a feature on how to help cope with loss through journaling, a focus on circus themed pages and artists answer questions like how they overcame an artistic obstacle, how they keep their brushes in good shape and how do you fix a page you don’t like.
Inspired some of the ideas in the magazine here’s two pages I added to one of my own art journals. I love using old books as my journal bases and for this double page I painted over both pages with brown and cream acrylic paints, making an art doll from a vintage image, pattern paper, a dress stencil and wings sticker, adding some sticker frames and stamped sentiments, along with several metal embellishments.
